What I find fascinating about Matthew’s account of the visit of the Magi is that *no one else in Jerusalem made the short trip to Bethlehem to see the Christ child for himself or herself*.
Things haven’t changed. How many of us are too busy or otherwise distracted to actually show up to see God at work?
How many of us permit our schedules to keep us from what’s most significant?
This leads me to my 2021 New Year’s Resolution for you:
Be at church every Sunday in 2021.
(I know it’s presumptuous for me to give you a resolution, but there ya go.)
